The Good Life


What is the good life?
Some people may believe that having extreme wealth, beauty, power and prestige equal a good life.
Researcher states that it is quite incorrect.
The good life should be referred to as the factors that contribute most to a well-lived and fulfilling life.
And using signature strengths every day to produce authentic happiness and abundant gratification (Seligman, 2002).


3 elements of good life:
Positive connections to others can include the ability to love, the present of altruistic concerns, the ability to forgive and the presence of spiritual connections to help create a sense of deeper meaning and purpose in life. 


Positive individual traits can include a sense of integrity, the ability to play and be creative, and the presence of virtues such as courage and humility. 


Life regulation qualities are those that allow us to regulate our day to day behavior in such a way that we can accomplish our goals while helping to enrich the people and institutions that we encounter along the way. These qualities include a sense of individuality or autonomy, a high degree of healthy self control, and the presence of wisdom as a guide to behavior.

Ya, the good life must include relationships with other people and with the society as a while. The good life not just as an individual achievement that is removed from the social contect.



Actually I am doing my revision for final exam now^^
I believe I got a good life so far, however good life is a process so we should keep contributing.
All informations are retrieved from my textbook 'An Introduction To Positive Psychology'.
I want to share this with you because it is really meaningful =) 
Psychology is based on the scientific method:) It is very important in every area of our life.

读了你的博客之后对你有很不同的看法。初次看你照片觉得你就是一个和普通女生一样,喜欢打扮喜欢漂亮的一个女生。但阅读过你的博客后发觉,你很不同。你的思想,你说的话,你写的文章,就可以透露你有没有内涵。尤其是你在谈论philosophy和人生道理方面,很inspirational。我很欣赏你这一点,很少有女生会在这些方面感兴趣,或是有这方面的学问。想请问你的实际年龄是多少?看你样子不算是很大,但却已经明白很多人生道理,好像已经出来社会很久已经明白很多事情明白人情世故。"Although we're not rich in terms of material, but we're rich in spirit."
